Cordillera Blanca (kawr-dl-yair-uh) or White Mountains, loosely translated to English, is the newest additions to the Sonoran Brewing line of products. This White Chocolate Ale is light, refreshing, and completely unique! Like most fine chocolates, this brew has delicate aroma and the subtle taste of White Chocolate that is truly astonishing!

Bottle that I brought to the Rosso release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells almost exactly like peanut M&Ms. Medium bodied, sweet and with a light faint tartness. Candy and milk chocolate. A little bit sour and tart on the finish. Yummy and tangy. I really liked this one and was quite surprised at how good it was.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Phoenix. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and pale malts. Sweet and sugary. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. I’m told this is very popular out here. I liked the first few sips but got sick of it quickly. Wouldn’t recommend more than a taster.

BMan1113VR (7912) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to jkwalking05. Pours with a large white head over a hazed golden body. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla bean and cocoa. Taste is cream soda, lots of vanilla bean and some cola notes. Lively bubbles. Interesting!

slowrunner77 (7873) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle as Wht Chclt. Aromatic first shows little chocolate though the flavor is a tootsie roll wit. Interesting but not great. Aroma eventually opens up a little. Body is way too carbonated and takes away from the overall.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 13, 2010
Draft. Golden-amber beer with a whitish head. White chocolate aroma with malt. Orange and white chocolate flavor with malt. Medium bodied. orange and white chocolate lingers with a bit of malt (and possibly wheat). Different, but gets a bit tiring.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with with clear gold body and tiny white head. The bold aroma offers up saltine cracker, crusty caramel and chocolate. The taste is overly sweet and I’m damn glad I only have invested in a 6oz pour as opposed to a whole bottle. I get sugary malt sweetness some chocolate and sugary sweet cream soda. Hmmm?

5/16/11. Bomber labeled "White Chocolate Ale" courtesy fata2683! Light golden pour with a frothy off-white head that lasts. This is very interesting. Bright wheat aroma hits at first with lemon peel and soft wheat malts but then lingers with a definite chocolate touch. Slightly tart lemon wheat brew flavor hits first but the lingering flavor is definitely smooth, almost buttery white chocolate. Quite interesting and quite nice!

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle:   Pale straw, lively carbonation, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Mealy nose, faint hazelnut.   Very airy on the tongue.   Minor mocha latte with hazelnuts.   BURP!   Seems overcarbonated.   White Chocolate?   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   All the sweetness seems artificial.   Seems like a watered down froo froo coffee, with hazelnuts.   Tastes better than it smells.   Also seems like it could be really poor white chocolate that has been uncovered in the cupboard for a few years.   Sort of a stale white chocolate background. Meh...

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Smells of perfume, grass, hay, some white chocolate. Tastes of perfumy funk, white chocolate, bananas, dry malt, spice, a touch of citrus. Interesting.
